A Few Good Things

1. We’ve been thinking about trying out a new city for our next move. Since we know what we’re looking for but not sure where we might end up, someone recently recommended using Teleport. It’s a fun tool that let’s me check out cities that fit our metrics and make comparisons based on how much they would be over or under our current cost of living.Screenshot 2016-08-02 21.21.00I don’t think we’ll end up in Berlin, but it’s good to know what’s out there.
2. Last month, I noticed my partner was waking up every day with a different song in his head. I started making a habit of asking him about it. He has very large and varied catalog of music in his brain. Now, he has (finally) started a blog to keep a record of these songs. I like it :).Screenshot 2016-08-02 21.04.123. I finally started watching Gravity Falls and I love it.

Me vs. Yesterday

Yesterday I woke up in a funk and then a few things happened to turn that funk into a bad mood. By 11 AM I felt sad, mad, and sort of hopeless. It’s a slippery slope into despair once you open your brain up to the possibility of all the things going wrong. But once I got home from work I was determined to pull myself out of it. (Truthfully, I spent a few minutes lying down first, deciding if it was worth the effort to try or just go to bed at 6 PM, but I shook that off.)

First, there were burgers:

Always put an egg on it.

Then, there was the comic & games shop, where I picked up some Saga I’ve been meaning to buy, and something new that looked interesting:

Something read & something new.

Then I came home and relaxed, laughed over chat with my best friend, and ended the day feeling positive. Strike one in the column for getting back up to try again.
